FAQ

Does acupuncture hurt?

Sensations such as tingling, itchiness or heaviness are quite common after the needles are placed, but that is a GOOD thing. It’s a sign that your qi (energy) is moving and healing is happening! Many of the needles I use are as thin as a strand of hair and many times you won’t even feel them go in. Most often, patients are so relaxed they fall asleep on the table!

Where would the needles be placed?

The needle placement is 100 percent dependent on the amount and quality of pain, as well as the location. There are hundreds of points, and each has its own function. Single points and pairs of points are used for many different reasons. Don’t be surprised if your shoulder hurts and I put a needle in your shin!

How long are the visits?

The first visit is a little longer because we take a full health assessment before the treatment. After that, appointments should take no longer than 30-45 minutes.

What should I wear?

Loose fitting clothing is best. Most treatments will require access from foot to knee area, as well as the entirety of upper body. Orthopedic cases may require clothing to be removed, but in that case, body coverings are provided as patient privacy and respect is paramount.

How do I prepare for a treatment?

There isn’t much preparation for an acupuncture treatment. I recommend that you eat at least a snack or light meal within 2 hours before your appointment. There is quite a bit of work going on behind the scenes, and it’s important you have energy in your system to support that work.

What is the recovery time after an appointment?

There really is no “down time” post treatment. Some procedures such as cupping and gua sha have a few post treatment recommendations, but work or regular exercise routines will not be interrupted.

How long should this take?

The first appointment may take a bit longer, but no more than 45 minutes. After the initial visit, you’ll be in and out in 30-35 minutes.

How many visits will it take?

The number of appointments needed varies and is customized for each patient based on severity of issue, how long it’s been there, etc.

What is dry needling?

Dry needling is a method of releasing tension in muscles, or trigger points, using acupuncture needles. The needles stimulate the myofascial trigger points to improve how well your muscles move and reduce pain. Same points as other pages as far as time, treatments…..

APT

Why use ATP Resonance BioTherpay? ATP Resonance BioTherapy ™ is a technique for treating pain that uses low-level electrical current. The current is delivered to certain parts of the body in an attempt to relieve the pain.
Frequencies have a direct effect on our bodies and can almost instantaneously change chemistry. Some frequencies can reduce inflammation and some improve circulation. You can think of it as a mini computer program that defragments the problems and gets our bodies heal themselves and run more smoothly.

How Does ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ Work?

ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ is applied to the body with a device that delivers a mild current. Microcurrent is an extremely mild electrical current (one millionth of an ampere). In ATP Resonance BioTherapy™, depending on the tissue involved, specific frequencies are selected to encourage natural healing of the body and to reduce pain.

Is ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ Painful?

Treatment with ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ is non-invasive and painless. The currents used in ATP Resonance BioTherapy™are so low that the patient often does not feel them. During the procedure, patients may notice certain effects, including warmth and a softening of affected tissues.

Is ATP Resonance Bio Therapy™ Covered By Insurance?

Insurance companies only like to cover treatments that don’t actually fix the problem, so ATP Resonance Bio Therapy™ is not covered by any insurance. The good news is, that you are the one in charge of what procedures you get, not an insurance company.
